Anschutz 1727 F
Muzzel .700" -- Standard Class
Leupold 3-9x 33mm EFR Ultra Light
BullsBag - Protektor Rear Bag
CCI TNT .17hmr

Shot at 50yds off a bench.

This not being submitted for inclusion in the Sawdust Challenge, because I have a 25yd target which is more in keeping with the other targets.

I'm justing showing it for fun.

Anschutz 1727 F
Muzzel .700" -- Standard Class
Leupold 3-9x 33mm EFR Ultra Light
BullsBag -- no rear rest
CCI TNT .17hmr

Shot at 25yds, Indoors.




This was way harder to shoot than I had expected. Without a rear bag, sitting on a stool made it a real challenge to keep the gun still. I won't go into all the details, but it took me ten minutes of fiddling around to start the target.

I feel very fortunate to have only that one poor shot on target #4, considering how tough to was to keep rifle on target.

Both targets were one-offs, mainly because this isn't a contest to see who can shoot the smallest average. Having said that, I think I could go smaller at 25yds if I shot off a bench using my rear bag.

Please evaluate the 25yd target for inclusion in the Challenge.
